Trailing Newfield 2-1 to open the 4th inning, Comsewogue loaded the bases when Christopher Valazquez laid off a pitch for the walk to plate Aaron Freidman to tie the score, but it was Dominic Schuch’s bat that spoke next for a base clearing inside the park grand slam homerun to jump out front for a 6-2 lead.

But Newfield chipped away at the deficit loading the bases in the bottom of the 4th inning plating a runner when the batter was hit by a pitch then Mike Madina drove in Stephen Lumme and Dylan Johnson. Newfield’s Joe Hackel scored on a passed ball in the bottom 6th inning to make it a one run game when Medina struck again with a 2 run rbi double to take a 10-9 lead to open the 7th inning.

Newfield’s defense prevailed to close out the one run victory.

With the win Newfield improves to 13-2 for the top spot in league III with 3 games left on their schedule while the loss drops Comsewogue to 7-8.

Post season play begins Tuesday June 15.

The Port Jefferson Royals at 0-6 had their hands full looking for that elusive first win of the season on the road against the 5-1 Eagles of Rocky Point, but that first taste of victory wasn’t to be. Port Jeff fielded a short roster resulting in a 7 on 7 contest without the luxury of substitution. The Eagles rattled off four unanswered goals in the first half and peppered the scoreboard with four more in the second for an 8-0 shutout.

The win lifts the Eagles to 6-1 in Div II just beyond the half way point with 6 games remaining.
